A second panel of US federal judges has sided with NYK Line in a $260m dispute with sailors injured and killed aboard a US Navy warship.

An en banc review of an earlier decision from the Fifth Circuit Court of Appeals — which included all the judges in the circuit — ruled 12 to five that the US courts have no jurisdiction over the 2017 crash between the 2,858-teu ACX Crystal (built 2008) and the USS Fitzgerald that killed seven and injured 42.
